What is Craniosacral Therapy (CST)?
Craniosacral Therapy is gentle massage that involves manipulation of the bones in the skull. Alignment and balance of the craniosacral system that encompasses the cranium, including the face and mouth, bones of the skull, fluid that is around the brain, spinal cord, and down to the sacrum is very important for overall health.
In this technique the massage therapist uses light pressure in specific areas of the craniosacral system to be able to activate the natural healing mechanisms of the body. By initialising the movement the fluid within this system can remove restricted area’s and create a natural balance to the energy flow and function to the nervous system. Some common problems that are treated with craniosacral therapy include chronic pain, chronic headaches, scoliosis, whiplash, muscle tension and even the common cold.
